Opened in 1929, Old Orchard Country Club has a classic design with challenges that stand up to modern golf courses. Throughout the course, you'll see traces of the site's former use as a farm. Ancient apple trees from the original orchard frame many of the holes. The diverse layout will test you with a variety of different shots but the gently rolling terrain makes for an easy walk. Skill and strategy will be generously rewarded but it's not an overly punishing layout for the high handicapper. Old Orchard's greens play true and fast and they are often flanked with strategically positioned bunkers. A stream wanders through the golf course, coming into play on several holes. Golfers will face a tricky island green on the par-5 seventh hole as well as an almost-island green on the par-4 13th.

Coming Back!

I haven't played this course in over 25 years - having PTSD from suffering through flocks of geese and chewed up tee boxes and greens. But I was pleasantly surprised. This layout is really appealing to the eye! If taken care of The OOC has so much potential! After all it's a Tillinghast course! My only hope is that the current owners continue to give it the proper TLC that it deserves and improvements are evident with each future visit. (Please put sand in the bunkers!!) I went with my best friends and had a wonderful day! We definitely will consider coming back here in the future.

Carts don’t work

Had our golf cart die mid round, they came out abs gave us a new cart and that one also died. We couldn’t even finish our round and the employee said they can’t get new carts because of covid … so they just keep sending people out in the broken carts. nice.

Great layout, place is stuck in the 80’s

Overall the course is a great layout. Fun to play but the conditions are horrendous. I usually never write these reviews but yesterdays round was brutal. The pace of play was fine, the 2 employees that we met were friendly. But other than that the place is stuck in the 80’s. The bunkers were concrete, the fairways and rough were exactly the same and the greens were rock solid. I couldn’t even put a tee in the tee box the ground was so hard. We ended up walking which was $37.00 a head, with a cart was $63.00. Do yourself a favor, don’t play here.

I’m normally not good in the sand to begin with but my one shot on hole 3 I nearly broke my wrist swinging into it. So the other 2 times in my round I ended up in the sand I told my friends I’m taking a practice swing into the sand just to see if it was going to happen again

Not a top pick

I’ve played here once before in winter (25 degree day) and expected the conditions. They haven’t changed even with all the warm weather. The greens were awful, tee boxes close to being as bad as the greens. If you find any other course that’s in the $60 range, this should not be a top pick. The staff was great though as the drove out another cart when one of ours died on the second hole. So basically the staff friendliness and pace of play is floating the 3 stars for overall in my opinion.

Save your money and go elsewhere

2nd time playing this course. It hasn't changed since last summer. Whoever owns this place is just laughing at you when you play here. They are talking every dollar of your round and simply stuffing into their bank account. They are spending not 1 penny on course upkeep. The bunkers are horrible. It's hard to tell where the fairways end and the rough starts. Add 3 strokes per 9 due to the horrible greens which are patchy and moldy; good luck hitting a putt! The bridges you have to drive/walk over, it would not shock me if you read that someone falls into gross water crossing over one. The staff is nice. The course has a nice layout with some challenging holes. This place could be nice but they are just putting Z-E-R-O money into any course maintenance. Cut the fairways. Treat and roll the greens. Rake the traps. If the owners don't care about it, sell it to someone who does or blow it up already and make condos. Bottom line, save your money and golf elsewhere!

We’re sorry to hear of your less-than-satisfactory experience and hope you will accept our sincerest apologies. We can assure you there is no mold on our greens. While our course is not up to the highest of qualities right now, we will be aerating this week so conditions will be better in days to come! We also want to apologize about our shortage of carts. We are doing our best to handle the situation as best as we can.

Average course. Too much money for what it is

The greens have “speed bumps” and are not well maintained. I get that it’s early in the season, but there are no fairways whatsoever. It feels like you’re playing in an open grass field. You can’t even see the distinction between the fairway and the rough. There are better courses available for the same price or cheaper

Could have been better

Course, particularly sand traps badly need TLC. Gold card was dirty. By the end of 25 battery was dead. We pushed the cart to 16th tee box and called desk. They promised to send a replacement out immediately. We let 2 groups pass and finally put our bags over our shoulders and walked leaving cart there. Terrible service

Presidents’ Day golf

Great weather, course packed, but staff did a good job getting us out on time. Finished in 4 and a half hrs. Course was surprisingly dry for February. Tee boxes, fairways and traps in good shape. Greens were in mid-winter mode, but what can you expect. Just happy to be playing. Very enjoyable day.
